The whole area is in the middle of district 2 and planned for luxurious housing and recreational facilities. The project’s insistence is to meet both economic and aesthetic aspect. The task includes two-storey car park, a luxurious spa and fifty six luxurious apartments for single people and small families. Experience of living in high rise apartment buildings is unfriendly and unpleasant because of the feeling of being separate from the outside, being imprisoned in our own place by mean of the buildings’ “walls and windows” cover and floors. That also means we lose communication with nature. We are disconnected. In high rise building, floors are inevitable. Thus, it seems that the cover is the only possible element to help people connect to nature. As usual, high rise buildings’ covers give us safety from winds, sunlight, rains and from falling out of buildings. In this case, we try to provide the building a “soft cover” to substitute the “walls and windows” covers which represent division whilst maintaining the original functions of covers. The most noticeable aspect of the “soft cover” is that it can absorb changing nature selectively by including layers of many kinds of porous “wall”, glass, louver and curtain. The flexibility of the “soft cover” provides people inside the most possibility to choose to be separate totally from outside or open to it, to control sunlight, winds and whether to let the rain come in or not. Eventually, the apartments are not a sum of functions and insensible spaces anymore. They become lively entity embracing our activities. Simultaneously, within our motion, they come to life as real organic entities and help us reconnect to nature. We find the way back to our lost communication.
